. i saw this one, the war in iraq coming from the first days after 9/11. there were those in the bush administration who saw this as their opportunity. they were helped by war hawks on the outside. the "washington post" op-ped page, the "weekly standard," the new republic" were open billboards for the relentless push toward war. establishment media joining in offering uncritical coverage of the administration line. this is not a good statement about the american press. i'd like to believe my generation, especially those who grow up in maturity to the horror of dishonesty of vietnam would have spoken loudly against the war hawks. few, mostly on the left, did. fewer from the middle. still fewer from the right. what's worse than that in those months of late 2001, 2002, and early 2003 to oppose the war when there was time to stop it, worse yet, the question is motivation, to cause trouble for yourself. even when a whole new vocabulary, wmd, homeland, regime change, freedom fries, coalition of the willing, was being confected and infiltrated into our national dialogue. the mainstream media

killed this morning in explosions across iraq. that's exactly ten years after then president bush announced the u.s. invasion. most of today's attacks were car bombings around baghdad, including one near major government offices and foreign embassies. we're still getting information in on that in terms of casualties and injuries. elizabeth, you first, ten years later, where are we? well, it's a very difficult anniversary. no one remembers this fondly at all. the iraqis certainly don't remember this well. they're not marking this anniversary at all. i also think that the war changed fundamentally the way the united states thinks about war. look at how reluctant the president is right now to intervene in syria in a serious way. look at how reluctant the pentagon was to go to war to intervene in libya. look at how long the afghanistan wars lasted because of what happened in iraq. we're in a very sober place right now. also, we have to remember, nearly 5,000 american men and women killed in uniform killed as a result of this war. i should also -- i should also tell you, i am at this p
today in president bush's book "decision points" he says he wished he had done immigration before social security, because he thinks there would have been bipartisan support for it before he tried. but it failed mostly because harry reid called a cloture vote. over, some of the issues take a long time to marinate. that that as people thought it through, i think they realize it's not having a good comprehensive immigration policy is hurting us economically and it's not the right thing to do. it's time to solve it. i admire everyone for coming to the table. but i want to make a point. what rand paul is saying is contrast to gang of eight. his idea is security first, legalization and then citizenship. gang of eight put forward legalization, security and then citizenship. that seems like you could find a compromise, but that is a big leap between security and legalization piece and flipping them. >> andrea: what do you think, eric? >> eric: rand paul opened up a can of whoop-ass on the hill and they were flooded with calls say dog you care to weigh in on rand paul's idea? he threw people for

accepting of what the bush administration was claiming. so a good example would be, and not everybody is as discerning as you are, a good example, front page story in "the washington post," use that as an example, could be anybody else. today president bush said saddam hughes and is working with al qaeda. he is here, this is the story, and they quote an unnamed analyst because they can't speak openly, who would say we have no evidence to back this up. >> and i would seize on that. >> you would seize on it, put on a show if you have a show at the time. but the general thrust of the matter is you worked in congress, you know that a lot of congressmen and senators don't get past the headlines, we should take what bush says with more weight. the thrust of the story should have been president bush said something, contradicted by his own government and that should have been the lead, the fact he was saying something that wasn't proven. again and again and again. colin powell, that speech he gave february 5th, 2003, everyone remembers that, you know -- >> swayed a lot of people. >> swayed a
're nostalgic, until even a bush -- what happened that they're so far right that the republican party has no sense of what the mainstream is concerned about? >> this is one of those problems when you don't have a clear leader. when there was president bush, he never got credit from liberals at the time, but he was keeping a lid on this stuff. bush was a believer in a lot of kemp. his passion in addition to conservativism was derived from kemp. without that, first there were no leaders and you just had the tea party movement rising up and and then a lot of these leaders are in the conservative house district mostly. so you end up without someone to lead them and say, look, i talked to people outside our group, and these certain things are deal-breakers for them. i know it sounds great when you're talking to each other, but pre-bus did address this a little bit. he talked at the i had logical cul-de-sac that republicans were driving around in where they never stopped to hear what other people were thinking. so it's important to go to these groups and go, why don't you tell me why you aren't
retroactively. and george bush and dick cheney and condoleezza rice are still around. in terms of how we get right with this as a country, the accountability can't just be personal about the decision makers. it has to be about telling the story honestly about what happened so that they, like nixon, don't get away with it in the long run the way they got away with it in the short run, so we tell the story correctly and honestly, so it's not dismissed as a conspiracy theory by generations hence by americans who can't believe something this evil would happen in our country. it did. we need to teach it that way and learn it that way if we want to have any hope of it not happening again. in american politics there were plenty of democrats who went with the iraq war ten years ago, who believed it, and made it more convincing by virtue of their democratic endorsement. on the democratic side that at least as since become a source of shame. it's a strike against you in democratic politics. it's part of the reason we have a president named president obama who was not part of that mess and not hillary
. another terrible day in baghdad. the anniversary of george bush's announcement that america was at war with iraq. 55 people killed. more than 200 wounded. very hard to see that there is anything but chronic instability and continued hideous bloodshed there. what is your take? >> it's such a tragedy really the way things have unfolded in iraq. just looking at iraqi faces, seeing how pale they had become. we are hearing after one attack after another. people's voices actually began trembling. this is violence that, first of all, the iraqis never even imagined would end up being the outcome of america's war in iraq. so many of them hoped and dreamed they would have true freedom, democracy, that their horizons would be open. they have dealt with everything, all of the violence that wrecked this country over the past ten years. to be reminded of it again on the tenth anniversary shocked people and completely and totally devastated them, piers. >> it comes of course as the crisis in syria reaches what could be a tipping point where there are reports that president assad, although still uncon

're talking obama versus bush. >> i'm talking about the real government, wall street, the banks, the corporations that made $2 trillion is what we spent on the iraq war. who made that money? soldiers in the field? no, i don't think so. this is always about the people who have the purse strings and the politicians who are bought off by them, and so if they come on now and tell me anything about this, you know, ahmadinejad is building a bomb, really? well, i'll believe it, you know, when he walks in a room with it and shows it to me. frankly that's really how much i would not trust anything being said by the military industrial complex of this great country. >> when you see what happens in just today in baghdad, 55 people killed if i think 17 different bombings, two other assassinations took place, 200-plus people wounded. that's a typical day in baghdad. >> that's right. >> over the last few years. >> that's right. >> i mean, this is not peace. >> right. >> this is not democracy. >> this is not freedom. >> right. >> what is it? >> what it is is -- first of all, we set this thing
it's in a sustainable place. >> the problem is that the way bush has done it over the last eight years, is to take out a credit card from the bank of china in the name of our children, driving up our national debt from $5 trillion for the first 42 presidents, number 43 add ed $4 trillion by his lonesome. so we now have over $9 trillion of debt that we are going to have to pay back. $30,000 for every man, woman, and child. that's irresponsible. that's unpatriotic. >> this week he is not going to balance the budget. we don't have a debt crisis, we're headed to $17 trillion in debt under his watch. what happened that's irresponsible and then patriotic? what happened. i want to hear your best spin. go. >> there's no spin. we have a disagreement about the speech from the campaign, which was about why it's unpatriotic to blow your emergency fund when there's not an emergency. >> the credit card to the bank of china in the name of our kids. >> that's the whole point. we had gone through the 2000 with relative prosperity. that's not the time to blow your reserve fund. >> maybe you forgot
, but the results are -- we have seen under republicans, whether their names are bush, whether their names are clinton or obama, this government increases in size. and not hearing a clear call from the republican party. how they differentiate because you talked about lower taxes, yet the republican leaders in washington just exceeded to $600 billion in new taxes. and offered up, apparently, 800 to begin with. and the president is still encouraged by their generosity to be seeking another trillion. >> well, let's get back to the facts. you know, -- lou: well. well. wait. we. wait. i can let you say that without you explain what you did not mean to say that what i said was not factual. >> oh, no. you did not talk about all the facts. lou: oh, okay. >> the republicans have one house of congress. democrats and the other house of congress. they had a choice. they could have voted to let everybody's taxes go up. the fiscal cliff. or because they could not get the votes to keep nobody's taxes from going up, their choice was, we let everybody sexes go up or do we decide to percent of the people's
is, is that the way bush has done it over the last eight years is to take out a credit card from the bank of china in the name of our children, driving up our national debt from 5 trillion dollars for the first 42 presidents, number 43 added 4 trillion dollars by his lonesome so that we now have over 9 trillion dollars of debt that we are going to have to pay back $30,000 for every man, woman and child. that's irresponsible. it's unpatriotic. >> bill: well, here is president obama earlier this week being asked about the national debt approaching 17 trillion dollars. >> we don't have an immediate crisis in terms of debt. in fact, for the next ten years, it's going to be in a sustainable place. my goal is not to chase a balanced budget just for the sake of balance. >> bill: joining us now from lower manhattan dr. mark lamont hill who teaches at columbia university. i mean, this is rich, this is really rich, pardon the pun. so-- wait, wait, wait. i'll give you plenty of time so then senator obama is complaining about bush adding 4 trillion to the national debt in eight years. presid
was done with the same gun, with the bush master ar-15 assault rifle. 30-round magazines. after shooting his way in and killing the principal and the school psychologist after wounding the two teachers, he then went to the classrooms. the first classroom he came to was katelyn's classroom. the door to that classroom was closed when he got to it apparently because she'd heard the noise and closed her door. "the current" reports her classroom window was also covered up so the gunman could not see in. quoting from "the current," sources say that sandy hook elementary had only weeks earlier had a lock down drill and that she had not taken down the piece of black construction paper that teachers are instructed to place over the small window in the classroom doors so that no one can look in. and so the gunman went past that classroom. kept going, into the classroom where lauren russo was the teacher. in that classroom, he killed the teacher and all but one of the students. the students, the first graders were all found together in the same corner of the room apparently trying to get into the c
of george w. bush that says it stops with me. what went wrong is because of the cam pape, not because of this. that message resonateed. a true lead they're wanted to serve. he could have made a big impact especially when it comes to the economy. and the fiscal crisis that we face. >> dana: i think enough time had passed. i don't think that mitt romney, maybe he would not have gotten a great reception in december. but here we are in march, the weather is about to get better. people start to realize wait, we have a future as a party. they had a good cpac so far. do you think it was important for him to say i'm sorry, i will not be your president, thereby saying w in an interview with chris wallace on "fox news sunday." he is not going to run again. >> bob: that is clear. one thing, it reminded me when mondale, we lost 49 out of 50 states. we went before a large liberal group like cpac on the left. and i was terrified. i thought we'd get booed. he got a rousing reception. people don't want to rub it in. the guy lost. romney supports in the room. just like his concession speech. i'll say
beginning we created the balanced budget act of 1997 and it was during the bush years of spending multiplied now by the obama years that we have the mess. my difficulty with the tea party freshmen isn't the true passion. they are an important part of the republican party. at the end of the day you have to govern. just saying no doesn't get you anything and create these falls crises. you can get past the false crises if you work something out. it doesn't mean sur renning principle. working together in a way that you get 60% of what you want. >> you have to go back. i don't think the tea party has created the budget crisis. we came in with members and tried to do something about it. i remember a day when april 15 is when the house and senate had to pass a budget resolution. i remember when they had to reconcile the 13 appropriations bills and a day when the president actually had to introduce his budget and today we don't do any of that stuff and that is how we got to the $16 trillion and there is something rational about standing on the tracks and saying we can't do this any more we have to d
